Street sweepers were first invented way back in the 1840s as a response to unhealthy and dirty streets. Street sweepers come in many different forms, but all serve the same function - cleaning. They’re ride-on vehicles equipped with heavy brush bristles that quickly rotate and pick up dirt debris, which is stored in a large tank. They’re great at suppressing dust and can be found cleaning car parks, pedestrian areas, construction sites, roadworks, highways and more.
There are 3 different types of street sweepers that you’ll find available for hire in Australia. These include machine mounted street sweepers, road truck street sweepers and small/ride on street sweepers. Machine mounted street sweepers can be equipped to machines like tractors, skid steers and forklifts. They’re great for smaller to medium projects.
Road truck street sweepers are used throughout larger projects, like festival cleanups, construction jobs and more. Small or ride on street sweepers are obviously used for smaller jobs and are usually found in warehouses, hospitals, residential construction sites and more.
You’ll need at least a class C driver's license to use a street sweeper. Although there aren’t any specific street sweeper licenses in Australia, it could be worth undertaking formal training to make sure you’re confident enough to operate the machine in a professional setting.
